Words on Screen™ v2 eSongbooks and Song Calendar Song downloads purchased from our website cannot be cancelled or refunded once the purchase has been made, so please be careful to choose the correct product. The eSongbooks and Song Calendar songs are added to your Singchronize® Player‘s song library and to your account immediately at the point you purchase them.
